Building Emergency Action Plans (BEAPs)

It is the goal of the University Of Kentucky that each building will have a Building Emergency Action Plan (BEAP). The BEAP is developed by each department(s) that occupies a building.

The BEAP should provide basic direction to all building occupants regarding the needed actions to take during an emergency or crisis. It also identifies building and floor coordinators who take the lead in creating and updating the plan. Additionally, they may assist in enacting required emergency procedures should the need arise. The BEAP also establishes annual exercise schedules used to test the plan.

Types of emergencies covered under a BEAP may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Fire
  • Severe Weather
  • Earthquake
  • Utility Outage
  • Workplace Violence/Terrorism
  • Bomb Threat
  • Medical Emergency
